Jumping Spider (three photos)
I found this little male Habronattus hirsutus
jumping spider, with his
spiky hairdo, on a cactus outside of the Henderson Viewing
Ponds in Henderson, Nevada. © Carol Davis 3-29-2010
I took a few photographs of this little guy and
then he sprang
to another cactus like he had been shot out of a cannon.
I took one more photo and then he sprang to the netherworld.
I never did find him again. © Carol Davis 3-29-2010
Is there anything cuter than a tiny jumping spider?!
Have you ever noticed how a cactus actually resembles the
it lives in. Doesn't this cactus look like the arid
areas of Utah and Nevada
with just a few bushes poking out here and there? It
might not be fun,
however, to come across a jumping spider that was larger
than the bushes. © Carol Davis, 3-29-2010
